My review of Radiant Angel (John Corey, #7), by Nelson Demille:-

Spoiler:
For some time, the book promised a 5 star read. But the author mistook minutiae for perfectionism. The writer also claims he took artistic license. I couldn't verify this in most cases, except for gun silencers. They still make the loud noises that defeat their purpose.

Nelson Demille is even now a smart writer. He thought of the best jokes, some of which were xenophobic, but still were funny. The jokes dried up soon as the plot came to a sludgy stop for these crucial chapters that make or break a thriller.

Overall I must say I never wanted even once to ditch this book. Its clever format and crisp lingo prevented me from getting depressed. When I read a truly bad book, I do get depressed, and when that happens, I ditch the book. This has not happened here. 2 stars is the most and the least I can give.
